Hello from the New Hampshire Seacoast!

20 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone!

It's so nice to meet you all! I just got a Willow for Christmas, which will be my very first build. This is exciting! I am thankful to be part of this community and will definitely take advantage of everyone's expertise.

Thank you for making me feel welcome!

Welcome to the forum, Melissa. Do you have a vision/back story for the Willow or will you listen to what it tells you as you build?

Welcome to the little family, Melissa.  Don't be surprised to find that the kit will talk to you, if you're listening.

Hi Kathie,

Great question! I will listen to my house as I go. That always works best for me during the creative process. Thanks for the warm welcome!

Yes, Jeannine, I love NH. I grew up in Massachusetts and we used to go camping in NH as a child. I moved here in 1984 and have never regretted it. I live in Southern NH and can get to Boston, Lakes, Mountains and seacoast in +/- 1 hour.

I didn't realize that Earth & Tree was in New Hampshire, might be an interesting side trip when I go to MA to visit my brother

That wouldn't be a stretch from Attleboro, MA, then back to 95 North to Maine,  Just an hour and a half, then just almost 5 hours back to my home, only an hour difference total to the store and back to my route.  Guess I will have to plan on it next time I go down, first visit to a miniature store!

Take money & plan for most of the day; you would not believe all the good stuff in that store!

My biggest regret after coming to Canada was that we  didn't see enough of the US, we had a summer home in Washington for years and spent lots of time in trips to Oregon, a little of California and a bit of Nevada but we never drove further than that. Some of the states seen to call me and it is too late now. We always planned on buying a big rig when John retired and taking off for a few months, but it didn't work out that way, and I sure couldn't do it alone..

One of my friends drives a SUV and car camps with her small dog when she travels.

Thanks for the welcome, Jeannine! New Hampshire is beautiful, especially the Seacoast area. However, I must admit that I am more of a warm weather girl, but I am always appreciative of the beauty here.

Holly I would not want to do it alone actually, the joy is not there for me without John to share it with. He was a kite flyer and wanted to tour all the kite shows. guess who made the 32 foot wing span kites !!! I wanted to see the different types of communities, not the area so much as the folks and their traditions eg compare New York city to New Orleans and I am certain there would be many such variations. I wanted to shop in the food malls and eat the local food .Hearing the state names it conquers up visions of what I may expect to see. I could be dead wrong but it still sound interesting  the  best I could do now would be  to fly in but it wouldn't be  the same. I didn't want fancy hotels I wanted to see the grass roots of a place and the folks that lived there , you have to be driving to see that I think.

Melissa I love the coast, I would have great fun on the beaches, not sunbathing but looking under rocks, checking out the local clams etc. I have always lived within half an hour of the ocean, it sort of draws me.

I would like  to go to quilt country. I would like to go to services at many different churches..all that sort of stuff and of course  see the local crafts.  Dreams !!
